Well, Shut My Mouth

The end times may be upon us. This weekend I found myself and innocent child in a place where I never thought I would be. That's right. North Mississippi. Oxford, MS. To be specific. The Grove, MS. To be more specific. It is usually hard enough to endure for an Ole Miss/LSU game. But this. This was Ole Miss/Bama. The things you do for family.

We went to go see my aunt, uncle, and cousins. My best friend cousins to be more exact. And that was my highlight! We did have a good time visiting. And I didn't have a dog in that fight, so I was more than happy to have the victory in the visiting that was going on. I will tell you that the atmosphere was WILD. I also walked approximately 490395395 miles while pushing Beau and my blisters on my feet are a physical reminder of the hell I endured. haha.

It was a great visit that was too short, and made me wish we lived closer together. I mean you know you are close when you eat a slab of ribs with no utensils in the Ramada Limited in Batesville. Limited in comforts and amenities. We said our goodbyes, and it always makes me sad.

Sunday, we had the pleasure of visiting with Bubba's parents all day and that was delightful! Beau had the best time running wild and free.  He even wore his daddy's jacket which was downright precious. There is something sweet about a 1980s jacket on your little babe. Riding around on the farm and eating delicious food was the perfect end to a wild weekend. (I am conveniently leaving out the LSU game on Saturday because this is an archive of my memories and that memory I can live without).

Top three takeaways from this weekend:
1) Ole Miss fans are just as awful as I remember.
2) Bama fans are just as awful as I remember.
3) Family is the very best and worth suffering to see. :)
